T-shirt printer spits them out in seconds

Epson's SureColor F2000 can print a t-shirt in just a few seconds. At Comic-Con in New York, they had one on display: I emailed a picture, rested my iPhone on its transparent lid, and recorded this real-time video of it running one off in less than a minute. Like a goddamn office memo! It does full color tees, too. Specs:

• 5-color Direct-to-Garment Printer
• All new Ultrachrome® DG inks
• Revolutionary EPSON PrecisionCore® TFP® Print Head for extreme print quality and production speeds
• Maximum resolution of 1440 x 1440 dpi for white ink and 1440 x 720 for color inks
• Large garment imaging area up to 16" x 20"
• Designed for simple maintenance and high reliability
• Garment Creator imaging software included

It was on special at the show, but you'll have to pay the full $20,000 price now, suckers. Another caveat: you have to prep the tees chemically, and with a heat press, before using it. Here's some more video from a different show:

You should buy this t-shirt now: secrets from the lost decade will be conferred upon anyone I meet wearing one of them. It's available in coffee, cream and olive (pictured), from S to XXXL. Close-ups of the design (in the form of desktop and tablet wallpapers) are after the jump.

Boom Tee: monstrous science fiction tee from Singularity & Co

The fabulous Singularity & Co bookstore (where they find out-of-print sf classics, clear the rights to them, and bring them back as CC-licensed books) is finally selling its beautiful "Boom Tee" online, designed by Wesley Allsbrook. I saw this at NY Comic Con and wanted desperately to blog it then -- glad to see it online at last!

A t-shirt jam session with Generation T's Megan Nicolay

(Video link) In non-entertainment news, I am a huge nerd for a cool t-shirt. Sometimes I buy them (usually from Busted Tees or Headline Shirts), and sometimes they find me. The latter shirts are generally men's sizes -- too big and shaped like a rectangle, but so groovy that I don't have the heart to throw it away. Fortunately, there are people out there who know how to fix such things! One of those people is Megan Nicolay, author of Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt (Workman Publishing) and its sequel, as well as the companion blog. Megan and I hung out in the Workman Publishing office recently to put together a instructional video on how to alter a gigantic potato sack of a shirt into something acceptable to wear in public. After the jump, a quick walk-through of another design.

T-shirts ahoy!

Science T-shirt is blunt, to the point

Have I mentioned how much I absolutely love geneticist (and occasional BoingBoing contributor) David Ng? The fact that he designs awesome T-shirts while procrastinating just seals the deal.

Optical illusion tees look different depending on your perspective

Answersquestions sez, "These shirts designed by an Architecture professor friend of mine at Carnegie Mellon depend on perspective and distance in order to be seen. Check out that SKULL!"

Most tees are the same: splashy graphic or logo centered on a shirt for others to read. Vantage Tees are site-specific art pieces using optical illusions and body-specific effects to change everything about how people interact with their attire. Some shirts look different if you are looking at them or wearing them. Some ask you to be really close or really far. Others take time to see them. Vantage Tees will look different to everyone—it all depends on your vantage point.

T-shirt tribute to the time-honored combination of booze and science

We can argue for days over which field of science is the booziest (I used to say archaeology, but have since switched my vote to ocean science). But we can all agree on the adorableness of this Threadless T-shirt, which provides a quick introduction to molecular bonding. Will they feel as bonded in the morning? It's hard to say.
